New Jersey Divorce Lawyer Explains the Major Steps in the Process

shutterstock_113718259-1-300x200.jpgAs an experienced New Jersey Divorce Lawyer, clients often ask me about the major steps in divorce. The most important step in divorce, I would say is the beginning phase. I like to equate a divorce to a football game. The most important quarters are really the first quarter and the last quarter. The first quarter is about getting information, and in that process there's a document called the Case Information Statement, which is governed by New Jersey court rule 5:5-2.

This document is about 11 pages and is basically your entire financial life. You're going to have your budget and find out what your assets and debts are, and exactly what are the financial issues. To separate the properties, you are going to have to use equitable distribution. That means you have to divide you joint bank accounts and assets and a lot of different personal items as well as financial items and such.

It's important that during the process and the steps, you make sure you address finances. Get your case information statement done properly, where you have evaluation dates, proper numbers, bank statements, etc. You can do that before you go talk to a lawyer. Just go online and type in New Jersey Case Information Statement and start filling it out.
